A short visit to UE Irvine Office

for all the UE fan boys out there (maybe only machi di di).


entrance of the UE building


3D printing machine. time efficient method as it is able to print a number of shells at one go. (secret behind UE fast turn around time)


3D printed shells. can see they are trying to experiment with fully filled shell here as well. the fallback of 3D printing technology now is limited color choice.


place for the traditional method of creating the shell by making cast of the impression.



station where the color dyes are made.



preparing the faceplates.

printing of the engravings on the UE case.



machine that prints the special designed artwork. can only print one at a time. thus they are looking for new technology that allows them to print more at one go.


building the configurations of the drivers and its placement inside the custom shell so that the sound won't go off.


station to check that the drivers are working properly and the proper sound is achieved. after the drivers had been placed inside the custom shell.

some short thoughts of the models (note this is using the ipad demo, and i believe the actual model might sound differently)
UE4Pro - nothing sounds wrong on this. very easy to pick up and listen to. slighty narrow soundstage.
UE5Pro - sounds relatively veiled to me.
UE7Pro - very balanced sounding. can hear the presence of bass, mids and highs. mids is slightly forward sounding compared to the other frequencies.
UE11Pro - too much bass/low for my liking. overall presentation is abit muddy and slow.
UE18Pro - sound signature is somewhat similar to UE7Pro + greater soundstage and details articulation.
UERR - the sounds feel dead and flat on the ipad demo. very different from the actual UERR demo i heard. the sound is as if somebody has tuned down all the EQ settings to the lowest. whereas on the actual UERR demo mids and highs were more spectacular with great sense of space and openness, however bass was slightly fast and hence i felt the notes layering slightly falls short, especially in the lower end.

Spoiler!
